Many Disney fans and Cast Members have been wondering when life at Disneyland Resort, in particular, would begin to return to normal. Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure Park have been officially closed since March 2020. Recently, it was confirmed that Disneyland Resort will reopen — with limited capacity and to California residents only — on April 30, 2021.
This month, we were excited to share that 10,000 Cast Members would be returning to Disneyland Resort now that Governor Gavin Newsom’s “Blueprint Refresh” allows all theme parks to reopen in California’s tier 2.
Cast Members Rejoice
The official Disneyland Cast and Community (@disneylandcastandcommunity) Instagram page shared a heartwarming video featuring many Cast Members beaming with excitement as they return and retrain to operate according to the new pandemic-era requirements and standards in the State of California.
Some of the Cast Members who are returning to Disneyland Park and California Adventure Park operate Star Tours, Space Mountain, Monsters, Inc. Mike & Sulley to the Rescue, “it’s a small world”, Radiator Springs Racers, Guardians of the Galaxy: Mission BREAKOUT!, Mad Tea Party, and more.

With all the buzz going around this week, the Disneyland horses prancing their way back in the Disneyland Park, and sights of Radiator Springs racers being tested, there is light at the end of the tunnel for us Disneyland lovers.
At this time, the Walt Disney Company has not confirmed which, if any, rides and attractions will be non-operational when Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure officially reopen on April 30. Stay tuned to Inside the Magic for the latest updates regarding Disneyland’s phased reopening process.
